CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla, July 30: The biggest, most sophisticated Mars rover ever built — a car-size vehicle bristling with cameras, microphones, drills and lasers — blasted off for the red planet Thursday as part of an ambitious, long-range project to bring the first Martian rock samples back to Earth to be analyzed for evidence of ancient life.
KATHMANDU, Jan 18: Amid forecast of the US-based National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) that the smoke from Australia's fires will make a full circuit around the world, there are concerns around the world if this would leave impact on other countries as well. Meteorologists and atmospheric scientists in Nepal, however, say there is no need to panic although there are some chances of receiving slightly visible effects in the sky over this Himalayan nation should the fire keep on razing at a dangerous pace.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Jan 15: Two NASA astronauts ventured out Wednesday on a second all-female spacewalk to finish upgrades to the International Space Station’s power grid, but quickly ran into a helmet problem.
PASADENA, Calif, Dec 28: A NASA robotic rover is nearing completion ahead of a journey next year to search for evidence of past life on Mars and lay the groundwork for the space agency’s mission to send humans into deep space.
EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Nov 9: NASA, most prominent for its many Florida-launched exploits into space, showcased an early version of its first all-electric experimental aircraft, the X-57 “Maxwell,” on Friday at its lesser-known aeronautics lab in the California desert.
LOS ANGELES, July 6: The 1969 moon landing turned an achievement seen only in the imagination and sci-fi movies into a most improbable television event, a live broadcast starring Neil Armstrong and a desolate landscape.
WASHINGTON, May 14: The Trump administration asked Congress on Monday to increase NASA spending next year by an extra $1.6 billion as a “down payment” to accommodate the accelerated goal of returning Americans to the surface of the moon by 2024.
April 16: The moon’s magnificent desolation is far wetter than scientists imagined. A NASA spacecraft sent to study lunar dust and atmosphere also picked up signs of water being released from the moon as meteors collide with its surface.
WASHINGTON, April 3: NASA has made it clear they want astronauts back on the Moon in 2024, and now, they are zeroing in on the Red Planet -- the US space agency confirmed that it wants humans to reach Mars by 2033.
WASHINGTON, Feb 14: During 14 years of intrepid exploration across Mars, it advanced human knowledge by confirming that water once flowed on the red planet -- but NASA's Opportunity rover has analyzed its last soil sample.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Feb 14: NASA’s Opportunity, the Mars rover that was built to operate for just three months but kept going and going, rolling across the rocky red soil, was pronounced dead Wednesday, 15 years after it landed on the planet.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Nov 27: Minutes after touching down on Mars, NASA's InSight spacecraft sent back a "nice and dirty" snapshot of its new digs. Yet the dust-speckled image looked like a work of art to scientists.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 16 NASA's Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, lifted off at 9:02 a.m. EDT (6:02 a.m. PDT) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Southern California of the United States.
CARACAS, Sept 13: Man may soon be walking the dusty terrain of Mars with the help of an umbrella-like heat shield currently being tested by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
WASHINGTON, June 8: A NASA rover has detected a bonanza of organic compounds on the surface of Mars and seasonal fluctuations of atmospheric methane in findings released on Thursday that mark some of the strongest evidence ever that Earth’s neighbor may have harbored life.
WASHINGTON, June 20: NASA's planet-hunting telescope has found 10 new planets outside our solar system that are likely the right size and temperature to potentially have life on them, broadly hinting that we are probably not alone.
I had a dream to visit the United States of America and that came true last year. I also got an opportunity to participate in Space University Program at the National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA), conducted by Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Twenty seven students from 21 different schools from across the world participated in the program.
